Another Israeli myth takes a beating

Over the years the Zionists have foisted many a myth on an unsuspecting and gullible world audience. The success of Israel myth manufacturing industry was mainly due to the pro-Israel Western media which spread all its cons to all corners of the world with the aplomb that made readers and viewers accept all what it said without question.

The thrust was so powerful that the very thought of questioning the authenticities of these myths would make one look like a dumbo, even anti social. So much so it was thought that Israel was a miracle state and the Zionist Jews were about the cleverest of people on earth which in itself is a myth.

One of the notorious myths that Israel floated around was that Palestine was a place without any inhabitants and so the Jews would get the Land Without People For A People Without Land. Another was that they made the Dessert Bloom. With the advent of many media outlets independent of the Western media and especially the internet, these two myths have been dumped in the dustbin of history. Nobody takes them seriously anymore. Not even the Israeli propaganda machinery. There were Palestinians in Palestine and they had tilled the land for centuries, long before the Jewish Zionist state was even thought of.

The Palestinians had exported oranges to France years before the first Zionist set foot in Palestine. The constant media reports of the Israeli army uprooting fig trees and destroying farm lands in Occupied Palestine makes a mockery of the Israeli propaganda of making the Desert Bloom.

In the latest myth shattering exercise, Israeli historian Prof. Shlomo Sand of the Tel Aviv University in his book

When and How the Jewish People Was Invented? in the Hebrew language says the description of the Jews as a wandering and self-isolating nation of exiles, who wandered across seas and continents, reached the ends of the earth and finally, with the advent of Zionism, made a U-turn and returned en masse to their orphaned homeland is nothing but national mythology.

Dismissing the exile Prof Sand says the Romans did not exile people and that the vast majority of Jews in Palestine were peasants and all evidence suggests they stayed on their lands.

The Romans did not exile peoples and they could not have done so even if they had wanted to. They did not have trains and trucks to deport entire populations. That kind of logistics did not exist until the 20th century.

In addition he argues that most of today Jews have no historical connection to Israel.

In short what he actually saying is there was no such thing as exile of the Jewish people from their land. This, he argues, never happened.

Hence, the Diaspora is a total fabrication of the Zionists. This raises a crucial question. How come there were millions of White Jews - or Ashkenazi Jews- around the Mediterranean Sea at the turn of the century? The Bible describes Jesus Christ, undoubtedly a Jew, as a brown man with curly hair in the Book of Revelations.

Answering this question Prof Sand says the people (Jews) did not spread but the Jewish religion did Initially Judaism was a proselytizing faith unlike today.

Prof. Sand argues that the most crucial demographic addition to the Jewish population of the world came in the wake of the conversion of the kingdom of Khazaria - a huge empire that arose in the Middle Ages on the steppes along the Volga River, which at its height ruled over an area that stretched from the Georgia of today to Kiev. In the eighth century, the kings of the Khazars converted to Judaism and made Hebrew the written language of the kingdom.

This hypothesis is backed by the Jewish historian Arthur Koestler in his book The Thirteenth Tribe.
